I am trying to book the transportation to and from the ceremony and just want to check if my timeline sounds ok so I can confirm times with them.
The hotel (also where the reception will be) is 7 minutes driving to the ceremony site. We are doing photos at the ceremony site and some photos at the hotel before and after.
The hotel provides 1 shuttle that fits probably 10 guests, so I was thinking of booking an additional 14 person shuttle for 3 hours for my bridal party (17 between bridesmaids and groomsmen) and family. The hotel does not allow outside transportation greater than 15 so that's why I'm stuck just doing that size. I am guessing we will have about 15-20 out of town guests utilizing the shuttle
3:20 shuttle takes groom, groomsmen, grooms family to ceremony
3:40 shuttle takes bride, bridesmaid, brides family to ceremony
some photos before the ceremony separately. We are not doing a first look but got a photographer duo so we could do separate bridal party and parent photos at this time?
4:00 our shuttle and hotel shuttle pick up any extra guests, 4:20 shuttle if needed
4:30 invite time for ceremony, will wait until 4:40 for late guests, ceremony will be about 20 mins
5:10 shuttles take guests back, bridal party and immediate family stay for photos
5:30/5:50 bridal party shuttled back
6:05 bride, groom, photographers shuttled back.
6:20 end shuttle rental for 3 hours
Does this seem like enough time for everything? I'm mostly concerned with if we have enough time for photos, if the photo timeline makes sense, and if 20 mins round trip is a reasonable estimate for the shuttle. Thank you!!
